    So I've got this weird problem with this one specific game, Crisis Core: FFVII. I can start it, and it displays the Square Enix logo, FFVII 10th anniversary logo, and starts playing the intro. Now, by pushing X it should take me to the menu. But for some reason it doesn't respond. The X button works normally in other games. Dafuq is happening?

    I'm on the latest 6.20 cfw, PSP2000. Crisis Core was running normally before I upgraded from 5.50 gen-d3 cfw.

    Did you do something to the PRO CFW XMB or something menu thing?

    Cause sometimes changing some of the settings will cause for games to not work, like I had speed increase in GAME and VSH and it made some of my games not work and messed with my plugins.

    My seplugins folder is empty as I have no plugins installed.

    I don't think I've done anything to the menu settings. I'll have a look at it in a sec.

    From Where???
    i'm new to psp, but i was curious, do the memory sticks become corrupted? is it a common problem as we face with nds flash kits? using a flash kit mentality i'd suggest a reformat of the memory stuck, but i have no idea if that is an ideal solution.

    Yes they do, and it's a common problem with the many fake Pro Duo's going around and the MicroSD adapters (although Foxi will box my ears for saying it)

    A good stick seldom gets corrupted but i'd say it's a good practice to format your stick and repopulate it when you first experience game lag or problems, and ensure that your using a genuine piece of hardware. Also formats after constant content changes is a good idea too to ensure speeds are maintained (whilst this isn't something that can often have an impact on some games it really does...)

    Oh well, right now the PSP doesn't recognize anything on the memory card. Strongly considering getting a DS instead now, lol.

    Does your PC recognise the MSPD?

    Yep. Well, my psp recognizes the card itself, just not its content, i.e.. I can go to games>memory card, but it says something like "there are no games".

    do you have a GAME folder in your PSP folder
    some game WILL delete it if there is nothing in it, just put a Blank .txt file in it


    for the ISO folder to show games

    there MUST BE a GAME folder in your PSP folder

    also
    are you on prema 6.20 CFW or temp 6.20 CFW

    Sometimes after upgrading the firmware I experienced some bug like game can't load ( number error) or corrupted save and the trick to solve it was simply to dump all the data on my pc and reformat the stick.

    Go to the memory stick option in the PSP (do not enter it to view games, just highlight it), press triangle, and go to the properties. What does it say about magic gate? If it's false or unknown, that's a fake or damaged stick.

    It's indeed unknown. I've tried formatting via the psp and via the pc with no luck.
